us from the business desk. >> we've been reporting for quite a while now on government leaders really trying to attempt to wrestle with their budgets along with international lenders and it looks like this latest effort is going to drag on until later this month. eurozone finance ministers have shelved a decision on another bailout for greece until november. they want an austerity deal with international lenders first. finance ministers from 17 countries held a telephone witness to discuss the bailout. they said greece has yet to reach agreement on specification austerity measures with its creditors. the creditors include the european union and international mown tear fund. the austerity measures are a precondition for fresh emergency loans to avoid a potential default. the finance ministers urged the greek government to reach a consensus on labor reforms. the ministers will again discuss the greek bailouts when they meet on november 12th. greece is taking that pressure from the eu seriously. the government there has submitted a revitdsed draft budget to parliament outlining yet more
. host: is a short amount of your district, the sixth district, talk about what the federal government is point to do and whether there will be enough funding for the damage out there in new jersey and up and down the east coast. guest: we have got to make sure there is enough funding. this is like to take emergency appropriations bill to pay for. there's not enough money for disaster relief. there's got to be an emergency appropriation. i think it has to be robust enough to cover all of this. it is going to be very costly. just looking at where i was yesterday, yesterday i went to bellmawr, new jersey to look at the damage. you have all of the sand that washed away from the beach. you are talking about beach replenishment. and all of the damage to homes. some people have insurance. but for those who do not, or if their insurance is not complete enough to provide insurance, the federal government has got to help out. and i am certain that we will pass an appropriations bill to cover this, but it will be in the billions of dollars. i hope our colleagues on both sides of the aisle unders

thaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑñ of labor unions and good government organizations say mitt romney and his family made millions from investments as a result of the auto bailout but did not reveal the windfall in his june 1st, 2012 financial disclosure report to the office of government ethics. uaw president bob king says mitt romney and his family personally profited by at least $15.3 million from the 2009 auto bailout, yet did not disclose that in financial statements to run for president. "the public needs to know how much mitt romney bet against the american worker with his investment." at an auto workers' union hall in toledo, ohio, king and investigative journalist greg palast described ann and mitt romney's involvement in a hedge fund that purchased delphi automotive, a key supplier of parts to general motors, and how delphi's new owners got rid of 25,000 workers, dumped pensions and leveraged more than $12 billion in rescue funds by threatening to withold key auto parts from reaching gm's assembly line.

government has revealed that billions of dollars reserve for reconstruction following the disaster last year are being misspent. $150 billion were set aside for the rebuilding of infrastructure damaged in the disaster, yet a government order just now found a quarter of the projects being funded are simply not related to tsunami damage. a short while ago i spoke to bbc tokyo correspondent and he told me about the kinds of projects that are being funded. >> the list that has come out is quite extraordinary. i will just go down a few of them. building a road in distant oconomowoc, prison vocational training with japanese subsidies and renovation of government offices in tokyo, fighter pilot training, semiconductor research, i could go on, and the list does go on. clearly lots of projects that seem to have nothing to do with reconstruction after the tsunami disaster. completely different parts of japan appeared to be getting a large amounts of money from this budget. >> any attempt to account for that? or is the government just saying that this is wrong? >> the japanese prime minister of a in pa
pledging for support for what's expected to be a lengthy recovery. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they're needed as fast as possible, as hard as possible, and for the duration because the recovery process obviously in a place like new jersey is going to take a significant amount of time. >> indeed. the president will travel to hard-hit new jersey tomorrow, and just a week from election day the president's challenger was hardly content to sit on the sidelines. for his part, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign video before hand and a few remarks. >> a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night and the storm goes on. i have had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they've talked about a lot of people having a hard time. you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people as a result of one or two people taking an
financial company and to complete the government at divestiture the idea would be that the enterprise could be recapitalized by creditors and the financial company receiving a combination of cash, equity or debt in satisfaction of the claims against the receivership. the strategy has the advantage of returning the company to private ownership and insurers as possible avoiding an even bigger too big to fail company. it also would likely promote the stability in the financial markets of the mandates. a few words about international cooperation because that's certainly been a big issue in connection with how we going to do this? there is a lot of work done. certainly in the recent financial crisis that has been increased awareness on the degree to which these large financial companies operate across the borders. and so, obviously the resolution has to be coordinated internationally to reduce the risk of disruption. so, there is no current international insolvency framework to resolve a global the systemically important financial institution in a comprehensive manner so we really need to do adv
i am not confident that there is a measure that the government can take to make everything more secure. what i do believe would be possible is there could be a better way to incentivize. because right now when we heard dimitri with the oil company ceo, he has said, i have these regulatory issues. how long can i try to contain this before i bring others and? >> maybe we can keep this under the rug. there is a lot happening there. have you incentivize them to share information. >> i have to jump in. okay. i'm just a girl trying to protect a network share. the thing is i don't believe that this is the right model. i think crime is a better model. if you look at crime now, people say, well, you pour more money into it, then are we going to reduce crime. if we have more policemen, is that going to reduce crime? if you have laws, regulations won't stop it, laws won't stop it, it is just vigilant. vigilance about citizens protection and the way that they need to comment having law enforcement in the right places in order to best leverage a limited number of resources. and i think we re
with government, you will shut up. we just don't see much except that the piece published in "the wall street journal" a few weeks ago. >> i mean come on someone with some of those cases. they go back now about five or six years. i think in the middle of the bush administration i've talked to some of the flag officers, retired flag officers, who got phone calls, threatening that their pension rights were going to be under review and things like that. i think it was a completely outrageous statement at this and why -- i think obviously serving military officers is one thing, and didn't have all sorts of obligations that they limit directly their participation in public debate, public discussion. but once they are retired and completely free to speak, and i think they can play a meaningful role in public debate conversation. and then to use the power of government to silence them is completely outrageous. >> they're not completely legally free. >> secrets. >> they will all have signed, you know, agreements not to talk about classified material, even postretirement. and there, too, i would just
works for city governments. gordon feller, michael littlejohn and you have heard from carla. it is very hard to moderate. all i want to do is tweet. i wanted to start with a question that really build off presentation. this can be a very broad conversation. we are talking about efficiency and how we manage congestion and lower energies. we are talking about the integration of data. we are talking about participation was social media, co-production of solution. david mentioned this. the united states is not quite at the vanguard of this. when i think it can just in, i think about singapore. he brought the copenhagen. i want to start with the ibm and cisco part of the world appeared word you see progress within cities? where is the u.s. -- part of the world. where do you see progress within cities? where in the u.s.? >> we can point to smarter transportation and public safety and health care. that is not necessarily a smarter city. as marchers city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, -- a smarter city, and it was alluded to a number of times this morning, is a city of t
, the government already announced that some 500 will have been withdrawn by the end of this year. next year to take further decisions which the government has not yet taken, and you have to ask the defense secretary, you know, when he thinks that's possible. >> we are talking a time line of slightly more than two years, so i think things can change. i recognize that. >> yeah. i think the prime minister said what they're looking for is a glide past the end of 2014. the government will take those decisions when it's ready. >> what events will clearly dictate political decisions, not asking you to comment on political decisions, but dictate what happens -- >> i can give you confidence the figures announced by the prime minister out by december, that will be delivered. we'll be done. >> thank you very much. my last question, chairman, is is there any -- anybody heard anything about possibility of nato or the united states in particular? withdrawing significant troops earlier than the end of 2014? >> i think the united states also will want to take some provisions next year, and in light of the
warrantless search or should the government have gotten a warrant? if the court does not rule that way, i suppose they could rely on a reasonable expectation of privacy. if they go the other way and grow for the state, that would allow not only dog sniffs, but as i alluded to earlier, one ever the government wanted to, all manner of inspection, analysis, monitoring and or you can come up with for a warrantless search. >> police dogs can just go one place or the other stopping at every door in apartments and seth and it would be quite a change in of the law if you could go into apartments based on something like that. >> this case comes at an interesting time in the privacy world. we are still thinking about the court to's recent opinion in the united states versus jones. that was a case that was narrowly decided by justice scalia largely on a trespass and installation of gps device. there seems to be almost a shadow majority in the case. the reason i am thinking about jones and answering this question is that i think the court has become increasingly aware of the role technology is playin
of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machinery of the white house and the disaster response and being statesman like. that campaign isn't over. that campaign is going on and on, both sides, romney and obama, they're putting out press releases, talking points, hitting each other ads are on the air so it hasn't stopped. >> the surrogates are still in motion. >> except for chris christie. >> that's true. >> he's switched sides now a surrogate for the president. sorry. >> and to bring it back to the reality of the situation, chris christie has an extraordinary amount of work on his hands. you know, the next few weeks or months of his life will be busy with nonpolitical activities. after the break workers are stranded, hundreds of businesses are closed, thousands of flights are canceled and the new york stock exchange is shut down. depending on what model you look at, san
and the government federal response. what do you think of the federal response now? has it been good? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> my message to the federal government, no bur rak eaucracy red tape, get resources where they are needed as fast as possib possible. >> president obama has put disaster relief in high gear as millions across the east coast are in peril. >> the cooperation has been outstanding. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york.
and overhauled, it will get rid of hopefully a lot of the special interests, which takes the government out of the intervention and provides a clear playing field for everyone. this could turn around our economy, if done soon and done right. >> brenda: jonas, we don't know exactly what kind of overhaul we would get and isn't that adding uncertainty? wouldn't that keep people from hiring? >> moreover, it doesn't really, neither plan really addresses the deficit and the need for revenues. let's leave that problem off the table and talk about the job situation. i like what romney wants to do, the code has a lot of deductions that shouldn't be there, we should just lower rates and get at them. and in fixing that, if you pay 25%, and then you get deduct the mortgage or don't get to deduct the mortgage and pay 20%. if you're net-net not getting taxed any more, i don't see how that's actually going to lead to more spending and i tell you a little dangerous in the short run, the housing market is still-- and to pull out major deductions the home mortgage deduction being one of them. he didn't say h
is a former government hacker, who is now on the good side, a security specialist, one of the great hackers in the world, he last year decided to explore the vulnerabilities in the iphone. he found a vulnerability in the iphone that when he deployed it the right way, and this was for a contest, it enabled him to take over a portion of that iphone. industrial control computers are on a lot of systems, water systems, electric grids and so on. last year, a disgruntled hacker abroad went into a water system in south houston, texas, and got control of those computers. the list goes on and on. there are hacks of google, security firms. there are millions of attacks, literally millions of attacks around the world and intrusions on computer systems every day. probably the most phenomenal attack involves a warm called stuxnet. in that case, the u.s. government, i think working with israel, but the united states government to felt -- the u.s. government develop a computer warned that went into the nuclear processing facilities in iran and disrupted those computers. >> it was developed by the u.s. gov
an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state.
